Medical laser technology is on the rise, and here to stay.
In medicine, laser technology has evolved to play a “here to stay” role in the early detection of cancer and tumors, and has enabled less-invasive surgical techniques with greater surgical precision. Laser technology has become a key component in diagnostic and therapeutic instruments in medical specialities, including ophthalmology, dermatology, cardiology, gastroenterology, oncology and cosmetic surgery.
Of note, the United States represents the largest laser technology market worldwide.
One of the fastest growing FDA-cleared laser treatments being embraced today is for non-invasive body contouring and fat reduction. Even with diet and exercise, many of us have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. New laser applications bring about lipolysis, or death of the fat cell.
